July 22, 2021

Croke Fairchild Duarte & Beres is pleased to announce Timmy Knudsen, partner in the firm’s corporate practice, has been named to Leadership Greater Chicago’s 2022 Signature Fellows Program. The prestigious and highly competitive fellowship is awarded each year to just 50 individuals representing a cross-section of Chicago’s business, nonprofit, government, and education communities.

The 10-month program, which kicks off in September, exposes fellows to the most pressing business, government, civic and community issues facing the city of Chicago. Through seminars, immersive learning, hands-on community events and collaborative discourse, LGC fellows will tackle issues like racial equity, access to healthcare, police relations, and more. The goal is to develop the next generation of bold, transformative Chicago leaders.

“It’s a remarkable honor to be named alongside such accomplished individuals, and I look forward to learning with and from each of them over the next several months,” said Timmy. “As someone who strives to be a lifelong student, there’s nothing more rewarding than an opportunity to be in an immersive learning environment alongside people who share my desire to help shape the city and strengthen its future.”

Timmy will join emerging leaders from organizations that help define Chicago, including United Way of Metropolitan Chicago, BMO Harris, City Colleges of Chicago, Sidley Austin, Google, ComEd and Salesforce.
